Permanent makeup can transform your eyebrows. It can take years off you, whether your brows are sparse, over-plucked, patchy or are suffering from a hair loss condition due to medical treatment such as chemotherapy. If you simply want to add colour and definition or are wanting a celebrity ‘WOW’ brow or an extremely understated natural hair simulation brow, permanent makeup is just what you are looking for.
The Hair Strokes Effect Brow technique is used to mimic natural hairs. Tiny ‘hair stokes’ of pigment are implanted under the skin to create a natural looking brow. This is an ideal treatment for people who have experienced hair loss and don’t want a really obvious ‘made up’ brow. The colour will be custom blended to compliment your skin tone and hair colour. The hair-strokes effect offers a softer, natural looking alternative to the powdered brow.
Permanent brow procedure
– A step by step guide
Before any procedure can be done, it’s important to have a consultation with me so that we can discuss what’s involved and the style and shape you’re looking to achieve. I offer free no-obligation consultations.
I’ll perform a full skin tone analysis to determine what pigments to use to achieve your desired brows, taking your hair colour into consideration. Please see my pigments and colour theory pages for more information.
I’ll use a guide colour pencil to draw on the shape of your new brows, using calipers to perfect your measurements. You’ll be able to confirm that the shape and style is correct before I proceed. A topical anaesthetic is then applied to the brow area, to minimise any discomfort.
4. The procedure
The procedure takes between 60-90 minutes. You may feel a little scratchy sensation but this will be short lived as the anaesthetic starts to do its job. I will then check your brows for any final adjustments. After care is then applied.
5. Top up
You will need to have a top up appointment to check the shape and colour of the healed brow and take care of any adjustments. This takes place only when the skin has healed: usually 4-6 weeks from the initial procedure. Enjoy your brows!
Permanent makeup does fade over time and exposure to sun and skin tone are contributing factors as to when you’ll require a colour boost. I would recommend booking a consultation with me 12-18 months from your completed procedure.
